Oh God,

make all you can of my life.”

Here at David C Cook, we are in the business of communicating ideas and telling stories that will equip the church and ultimately transform lives across the globe. Every major movement in the history of the world, since Gutenberg, has disseminated its ideas, and shared its story, through the printed word. While the formats through which we communicate these ideas and stories are changing rapidly, one thing has remained constant for those of us who are a part of the body of Christ. We each play a part in the greatest movement in human history. In the gospel message and the story of Jesus, we have the most life-transforming ideas to share, and the greatest story to bring to the world. Painted on the wall of our headquarters here at David C Cook, there is a prayer from David C. Cook, the man who founded our company. He prayed these simple words at the beginning of his ministry in 1864, “Oh God, make all you can of my life.” And seeing this brief prayer every morning when I come to work, I too pray it oen and with sincerity. I think many of us do. So with this prayer in mind for ourselves and for our customers, it is my pleasure to introduce you to pastor and author Bri Merrick, and his provocative and challenging new book, Godspeed: Making Christ’s Mission Your Own. Merrick is a Bible teacher, church planter, and surfer who is passionate about engaging the church to join Christ’s mission as He works all around us. In this book, Merrick describes the Father’s mandate for mission, the Son’s model of mission, and the Spirit’s ministry through mission. A life engaged

in mission this way, writes Merrick, is one that truly looks like Jesus and ultimately changes the world. In addition, we are excited to tell you about a new book called Vertical Church: What Every Heart Longs For. What Every Church Can Be., by visionary pastor and communicator James MacDonald. In this book MacDonald calls us back to the true purpose of the church, which is to elevate and honor God’s great Son in the minds and hearts of those who gather in His name. Period. Also featured in this catalog are page-turners from two top storytellers—Best-selling author Lisa T. Bergren debuts a new series with her novel Glamorous Illusions, and award-winning author Nikki Arana brings us The Next Target. Rick Lawrence, longtime editor of Group magazine, plumbs the depths of a controversial passage from Jesus’ ministry with his book Shrewd: Daring to Live the Startling Command of Jesus. Look out for a never-before-published book from renowned scholar and author Dr. R.C. Sproul entitled The Work of Christ: What the Events of Jesus’ Life Mean for You. Finally, we feature the second groundbreaking film (or v-book) in Erwin Raphael McManus’ captivating, creative, and deeply biblical Signs short film series: Wind. As you consider the powerful ideas and life-altering stories we get to share with the world together, please join me in asking God to make all He can of the work of our hands. At David C Cook, we continue to pray that the resources in this catalog will help you transform lives!

IT’S TIME FOR

A CHANGE IN DIRECTION VERTICAL CHURCH

What Every Heart Longs For. What Every Church Can Be. JAMES MACDONALD Church is about God. God’s glory. God’s Son. God’s Word. God’s presence. End of discussion. People come to church to meet with God, to worship God, to hear from God. And yes, to experience God. God wants to be experienced, but we grieve His Spirit and push Him out of the church. The church His great Son founded. When did it all become so horizontal? Why was God shown the door in the name of reaching people? God is reaching people. But not the way most think.   Vertical Church is about a total shift in our thinking. Vertical Church is where honoring God and adoring His Son and proclaiming His word and seeking His face are the focus. Vertical Church is about challenging people, inviting them to something harder, calling them to something deeper, something far better and more authentic. This landmark book by Dr. James MacDonald is unlike any other book about the church. It’s a bold call to pastors, church leaders, and motivated disciples to fully embrace the truth that the church is first and last about the glory of God revealed in Jesus Christ. If you’ve been leaving church empty and frustrated you’re not alone—read what pastors are celebrating as they see their churches catch fire again: Vertical Church: What Every Heart Longs For is what every church can be!

THE AUTHOR Dr. James MacDonald pastors one of the largest and fastest growing churches in America. And God is behind it. Thousands have been saved. Tens of thousands attend vertical churches they have launched. Hundreds of thousands listen to his teaching every day. Now millions must return to what the church of Christ is called to be—VERTICAL.

SIGNS FILM TWO: WIND The SIGNS Series

ERWIN RAPHAEL MCMANUS In Wind, visionary leader and filmmaker Erwin Raphael McManus uses the metaphor of wind to explore the ideas of breath, life, and God’s Holy Spirit, who is the source of all life. Is there anything more mysterious than wind? We can’t see it, and yet we feel it brush our faces every day. In the Scriptures when “God’s Spirit hovered over the waters” in Genesis, the word used for spirit can also be translated wind, or breath. So God’s Spirit is like the wind. We can’t always see Him, but we sense His presence daily. As McManus opens up this journey, the story of a young couple falling in love unfolds onscreen. By the end of the film, viewers will never experience wind in the same way again.

THE AUTHOR Erwin Raphael McManus is an artist, filmmaker, author, storyteller, activist, and innovator. For over 30 years he has specialized in the field of creativity, innovation, human uniqueness, and discovering and maximizing personal genius. He is the creative force behind McManus Studios and principle visionary and primary communicator for Mosaic in Los Angeles. He is the author of many books, including Unleashed and Chasing Daylight. He and his wife, Kim, live in Los Angeles and have two children, Aaron and Mariah, and a foster daughter, Paty.

THE WORK OF CHRIST

What the Events of Jesus’ Life Mean for You R.C. SPROUL The Work of Christ,, the first new book in many years from renowned scholar Dr. R.C. Sproul, gives readers a deeper understanding of God’s purpose in every event of Christ’s life. Most Christians recognize the importance of Christ’s death and resurrection. But how many understand the theological significance of Jesus’ actions before and after the crucifixion— from even before creation? With wisdom grounded in years of scholarship, Dr. Sproul looks at Christ’s actions and asks: What is the greater theological implication of this event? Why does this matter to us today? As readers delve into Christ’s life and ministry, they will find greater understanding of the person of Jesus and renewed wonder at the Savior who loved them before time began.

THE AUTHOR Dr. R. C. Sproul is the founder and chairman of Ligonier Ministries and the author of more than seventy books. A beloved speaker around the world and a well-respected academic scholar, Dr. Sproul teaches on the radio program Renewing Your Mind with Dr. R. C. Sproul, which is broadcast in forty countries.

MESSY CHURCH Finding Your Place in the Family of God ROSS PARSLEY When God created the church, He didn’t build a corporation. He created a family. We are not called to be consumers who ask what the church can offer us. Instead, we are called to be a family, loving deeply, fighting fairly, and bringing hope to a new generation. A true family is where we are known, loved, accepted, and ultimately, where our deepest needs are met. Our culture is dying for the kind of community that only the church can provide—if we are living as the family God intended—protecting one another, extending grace, and loving unconditionally. In Messy Church, Pastor Ross Parsley shares his compelling vision for a better way of life. It’s called church—and it’s a place where no one is left behind.

THE AUTHOR Ross Parsley is lead pastor of ONE Chapel, a new church in Austin, Texas. He is also a renowned worship leader. In 2007 Ross helped to guide the church family at New Life Church in Colorado Springs through a major transition as the interim senior pastor. Ross and Aimee have five children.

SHREWD

Daring to Live the Startling Command of Jesus RICK LAWRENCE It’s the one Bible story Christians won’t hear in church. It doesn’t make sense: Jesus tells his disciples to take a lesson from Satan himself. In fact, He implies that if you are going to be any good for the Kingdom of God, you’ve got to be as shrewd as Satan—yet as innocent as the Holy Spirit. A scandalous idea? Yes. Essential to the Christian life? Definitely. Drawing on Jesus’ parable of the shrewd manager in Luke 16, Rick Lawrence explores Jesus’ most shocking mandate. Shrewd shows readers how Jesus was naturally shrewd in every encounter he had, using leverage such as laughter, generosity, and bluntness to influence a situation for good. As Lawrence reminds readers, salvation wouldn’t exist outside of the holy shrewdness of a loving God. And that’s a scandalous story worth telling.

THE AUTHOR The author of dozens of books including Sifted, Rick Lawrence has been editor of Group magazine for over twenty years and is the co-leader of the Simply Youth Ministry Conference. Lawrence is a consultant to national research organizations and a frequent conference and workshop speaker. He and his family live in Colorado.
